Meet the Author: Aaron Swartz

January 18, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Aaron Swartz, an advocate for the free exchange of ideas and scholarly materials online, committed suicide in 2013 after being indicted for illegally downloading millions of academic articles from the nonprofit database JSTOR from the campus of MIT. Slate correspondent Peters renders Swartz’s lifelong activism for free culture – he helped develop Reddit – to his early death and posthumous status as a cultural icon. Books will be for sale and the event will conclude with a book signing.
